Floating in the Marina

Returning through Swansea Marina on my walk this week didn’t mean I was floating on the water but did allowed me to enjoy the many complex and fluid patterns to be found there.

The masts and rigging, the architecture – both old and new – and of course the water patterns and reflections of the surrounding structures, whether maritime or land based. The older building in the photos below had an architecturally modern entrance added to it when the building was converted from the previous incarnation as transport museum and Abbey Woollen Mill to what is now the National Waterfront Museum. Museum was obviously not the original purpose of the building in the dockland area of Swansea, but both its previous and current use as such was well developed and it is full of the fascinating maritime, industrial and cultural history of Swansea – well worth repeated visits.
